  • Chris Paul: Over 21.5 Points Scored (-112) - CP3 hasn't gotten off to a great start scoring yet this season, but it's worth noting, CP3 has scored at least 22 points (averaging 28) in all four games as a Rocket against the Trail Blazers. Now that James Harden is out of the way, he should be able to hit this mark in his sleep.
